Understanding assessment tests

Today I saw the video question post by Narendra Modi

“I am a student of this school and I have an exam this year. You as a prime minister also have an exam year after year because of elections. Are you nervous?”

He gave a beautiful reply “As a student your job is to study, concentrate, excel and do the best you can. Result is a by-product; Rank, percentages, pass, fail are all by-products. Your entire effort is to concentrate in the best you can.”

He also gave a good example of the Jan Sangh Party in Gujarat in which several years ago filled 103 candidates in the election of which 99 lost their deposits and only 4 got the deposit back. Jan Sangh party celebrated by distributing sweets for getting just 4 deposits back. He said this attitude brought us this far. This beautiful question raises the big question on what purpose do assessments have.
Every year college students write exam in which some pass, some fail, some will get very high marks, some moderate marks.So, what is the purpose of assessment? How does one interpret the outcome or the so called by product? To me assessment can never be one time. The results are never cast into a stone.The purpose of assessment is to understand or to assess whether you have comprehended the subject or not. Low score means you have not comprehended the subject but low score/fail score per sedoes not mean you cannot learn subject. It means at this point in time you have not invested enough in learning the subject. Therefore a low score means you need to put more effort, you need to go back and study again and learn the subject.

Now this raises the more important question of how do I go back and learn? Learn what? This is where our exam system is failing. A good exam system should not only give you a low score, it should go back and analyse which are the questions you answered wrongly and based on that it should give you guidance on which are the subjects you should relearn. For example, In science if you got a low score it is not enough to tell a child that your score in science is bad but you need to tell within science these are the seven subjects in which you got the questions wrong and therefore you should advice to go and restudy these subject and take the exam again. So the entire focus of the exam system is not a pass/ fail or high/ low score or gate system with a go/ no-go quote/unquote system. It is a developmental system which is supposed to give you inputs so that you can develop yourself better and retake the exam. So in my view, you have to follow the international exams like GMAT or GRE or even SAT. In all these exams the tests are elaborate, you will get your ranking and you can go back and retake the exam after some preparation. So the focus shifts from pass/ fail, high/ low score to how do I focus on my weak areas, how do I strengthen it and how do I go back and makeup?

In a normal graduate education it is very common to carry subjects.Now most of the students are advised to take the exams and pass. While the first part is correct i.e. being a student another chance to correct and therefore give an opportunity to learn, relearn and write.Even that system does not give indications in what subarea of that subject that you are weak and how does one learn better. This is an important point to understand. When you relearn or when you know what you are weak in, the learning methodology also has to change. For example, if you are very weak or if your score shows you are weak in subject like science, going back and studying same textbooks will not improve. The learning will improve when you go back and study associated videos online, read associated books and then go back and study the subject text book again. Now you are likely to understand the subject better so it is not enough to relearn, it is also important to understand how to relearn, how to use another methodology. This could be to go to teacher for tuitions, go to a classmate and ask him to explain, but it is very important to hit the head against the wall again and again. Reading the subject alone again and again will not solve the problem you should overcome your mind limitations by learning differently. So,Learn, Relearn, Learn differently & All the best for the exams.
